Election Results - Where do we go from here?
Yesterday’s election results were disappointing. So where do we go from here?
This is my second article to write about the election results. My first was very dark; my wife called it doom and gloom. I understand that many of us feel defeated; we fought like conservatives fight, which is with every ounce that we have within us. We are not fighting for power, authority, or money; we fight because we love our nation, our state, and the people of Mississippi. We fight because we truly believe that the conservative principles on which our nation was built have created the greatest nation in the world. We fight because we want Mississippi to be the best place to work, rear our children, and live our lives. We fight because if we don't, evil takes over, and if that happens, we all lose.
Every conservative that fought and lost the election yesterday, from Chris McDaniel on down, should stand tall today, knowing they have not sat idly by watching and complaining; they made a difficult decision to take a stand. Campaigning isn’t easy; you spend hours door-knocking, reading emails, and making speeches, and you take endless criticism and hits to your ego. I am proud of all of those who took the chance, who made the commitment, and who made the sacrifice.
I also make a personal commitment to not give up on principles and to keep fighting for the conservative values and policies that Mississippi needs to move forward. I make a personal commitment to move on past this election and work with and hold accountable those who were elected. This process is what makes our nation unique in the world and in history. Average citizens fight for the candidate who best represents their values, and once the election is over, we rally behind those elected.
We still have another election in November; this was just the primary election. The next fight is between two opposing ideologies. The Democrats on the ballot are of the party of Biden and Harris, who are responsible for destroying our nation's economy and who have opened our southern border to millions of human traffickers, drug dealers, and criminals. Our fight is now against those in the Democrat Party who wish to destroy our power grid and literally leave us in the dark.
Now we join with those elected from within the Republican Party to fight the real enemy of our freedom and liberty, the Democrat Party. There will be plenty of time come January, when the Mississippi legislature is in session, to fight over how we implement conservative policy. Now is the time to ensure we have Republicans in the fight.
